    The Amazing Cachtice Hrad...

    by coceng Updated Jun 2, 2004
    Cachtice : The Castle !

    Favorite thing: This castle was one of several 13th century Hungarian strongholds between Piestany-Trencin.
    In the 17th century, a mad Hungarian countess called Elizabeth Bathory lived here who murdered & tortured over 600 peasant women...
    Since a fire in 1708, there's not much left of the castle but it has great views; The surrounding area is a nature reserve !

    On the left is the photo of the castle (ruins) taken by me ! Still intact, the walls...The Direction :
    By car, Cachtice Village is 7 km south-west of Nove Mesto;
    Visnove & the castle are 5 km from there on a side road south of the village !

    I said, "Another Photo !"...Marek just smiled...
    The last photo from this place for me...Sad to say. Well, not that I wanted to stay there forever but being there made me wanted to stay, for just a little bit longer...For the views !
    You can see the entrance of the castle on the photo...Next, we continued to TRENCIN.
    There's a castle in Trencin waiting for us ![Please click on 'Trencin']

    Cachtice : Me & Marek !

    Fondest memory: This castle was one of several 13th century Hungarian strongholds between Piestany-Trencin.
    In the 17th century, a mad Hungarian countess called Elizabeth Bathory lived here who murdered & tortured over 600 peasant women...
    Since a fire in 1708, there's not much left of the castle but it has great views; The surrounding area is a nature reserve !

    Eventually, we had to go out from the castle ruins & off the hill to continue our journey in Slovakia.
    There was a man just outside the castle ruins & we asked him to take a photo of us.
    Thanks Marek ! I would always thank you for the sheer excitement that we took to reach this place in rural Slovakia !

    Still as if not getting enough of the photos around the castle, I took another photo !
    It makes me wonder though that although this castle ruins are not kept, but the walls or rather the stones are white !

    Same spot as the above photo but I wanted to have me & Marek captured as well...I had to use the self-timer on my camera for this purpose.
    Thinking how the photo would turn out.
    Well, you could see now, it turns out excellently !

    My favourite part of the castle walls ! You could see me on the photo as well...
    I wonder what part of the castle was the photo from ? There's an arch...

    The weather permitted us to walk up the hill & to be able to capture many photos !
    If the weather was no good, it would turn out to be a different story...

    I would imagine all the peasant women & girls who came up here to be tortured, to be murdered by The Countess...
    The remnants of the castle walls were scattered, surrounding the hill.
    Not a big area, just enough for me to 'feel' the nooks of every corner...

    For 1 hour or so, I would charted myself all over the ruins, taking great photos ! For myself...
    It was an amazing experience for me, touching the walls, smell the air...Feeling like Elizabeth Bathory was watching my every move !
